ESk Harsonkv 1II/8 — brœðr ‘brothers’

Auð gefr Eysteinn lýðum;
eykr hjaldr Sigurðr skjaldar;
lætr Ingi slǫg syngva;
semr Magnús frið bragna.
Fjǫldýrs (hafa fjórir)
folktjald (komit aldri)
rýðr bragnings kyn blóði
(brœðr und sól in œðri).

Eysteinn gefr lýðum auð; Sigurðr eykr hjaldr skjaldar; Ingi lætr slǫg syngva; Magnús semr frið bragna. Kyn fjǫldýrs bragnings rýðr folktjald blóði; aldri hafa fjórir brœðr in œðri komit und sól.

Eysteinn gives people wealth; Sigurðr increases the noise of the shield [BATTLE]; Ingi lets weapons sing; Magnús creates concord between men. The kin of the very precious ruler reddens the battle-tent [SHIELD] with blood; never have four more distinguished brothers appeared beneath the sun.
